Working with Children to Heal Interpersonal Trauma : The Power of Play Paperback / softback

Edited by Eliana (Gil Center for Healing and Play, Virginia, USA) Gil

Description

Featuring in-depth case presentations from master clinicians, this volume highlights the remarkable capacity of traumatized children to guide their own healing process.

The book describes what posttraumatic play looks like and how it can foster resilience and coping.

Demonstrated are applications of play, art, and other expressive therapies with children who have faced such overwhelming experiences as sexual abuse or chronic neglect.

The contributors discuss ways to facilitate forms of expression that promote mastery and growth, as well as how to intervene when play becomes stuck in destructive patterns.

They share effective strategies for engaging hard-to-reach children and building trusting therapeutic relationships.
